Gone Too Long

It’s amazing how fast time can go by.  Especially when you have those days that seem to drag on and on and on.  And they are still not over.  If you are fortunate enough, you are able to get some vacation.  And those days go by so fast your head spins and you have no clue how that happened.

Behind the Medicine

I have not had a moment for a long time.  Even now, it will be short.  But since I have been away, I have had to start and adjust my son’s ADHD medication.  On top of many other obstacles, this is one of the hardest.  Simply because while he and I have support, it’s not from people we see every single day.  In our home.  And I am frustrated beyond belief. I am trying so hard to continue to encourage my son who, if you have a child with any kind of diagnosis along these lines, is not always very easy.  Will he react well or will the world fall apart?  Did he eat what he was supposed to or did he sneak something I won’t find out about for a week?  Should I worry that he wants to spend time alone?  My social butterfly?  Those are just in the first 10 minutes of him returning home from school.  Continue reading

Really?

Oh joy.  It’s February.  Valentine’s Day.  I am behind on my cool mom stuff I always try to do.  I don’t have my décor up.  I am sure being sick the past 3 weeks may have something to do with it.  But I have the mom guilt.  If you are a mom, then you know what I mean.  Mom guilt makes no sense.  But we have it.

Your Not Getting Brownie Points

Let’s make it simple.  Stop telling your children to treat others better than you are choosing to treat them.  Stop telling them to follow the Golden Rule when you yourself show the opposite.  Guidance and redirection doesn’t have to be put downs and intentionally hurtful. Continue reading

Glorious in Panic Mode

Squirrels could be a distant cousin from the ostrich.  At least in my world.  Okay probably not but it sounds good and I am going with it.  They can both hide their heads from the world when they feel like it.  Something people with spur of the moment anxiety cannot do.  Even though we want to.  And it’s better than biting someone right?   I just don’t feel like trying to get all the dirt out of my hair.  Selfish me, I know.

Dirty Words

How many times did you hear someone at school say a “bad” word and you couldn’t believe it?  Or when you thought it was cool to talk that way.  (Some still do) Recently, I have come across a word that is thrown around like everyday language.  But it’s not.  And it’s time to fill you in on a big secret.

False Convictions

“I am so sorry I punched you in the face!”  Even though that hardly seems like an accident, you forgive.  You move on.  At least you try to. There’s a part of you that is hesitant because you just KNOW it’s going to happen again.  You are waiting for it.  Then you realize if you wait for it, you are not in the right Spirit. A little time goes by and you let your guard down and allow yourself to be vulnerable again.  BAM!  And just like that, the left hook you forced yourself to forget about just knocked you into the corner and on to the ground.  Continue reading
